M.V. Alpatov, Doctor of Art, Academician: "...Yuriy Sarkisov is a remarkably gifted master. Nature is always the content of his art. His paintings are light like the bright sun of the sea in a light blue mist. They convey the sense of wide-open space and freedom. Sarkisov, as a creator, can transform life into an eternal holiday, and thus bring us joy."

E.I. Vodonos, Honored Art Worker of Russia, he chairs the department of Russian art of the Saratov Radischevsky museum: "Two views on the one Artist: Yuri Sarkisov. Poetics and Stylistics"
